9780538870627: Financial Accounting: Information for Decisions

Now in its third edition, the primary goal of Ingram/Baldwin remains the same -- to teach students to understand a company's financial statement information. This unique organization, introducing students to how a business uses accounting information and then focusing on activities of the firm, engages students with the type of financing, investing and operating decisions that a firm has to make. This approach is especially ideal for students who will become users of accounting information because concepts, not procedures, are emphasized.
